About “Mason” Brick
*Attractive, easy to install brick pattern foundation cover- measured height x width- vacuum formed panels composed of durable hard milled, 0.60 mil thickness- ABS plastic- designed so that adjoined panels overlap and create a continuous brick masonry pattern- weed-eater “proof”- won’t scratch or dent- panel is surrounded by 1″ flange for easy mounting- an affordable alternative to natural brick or concrete enclosure.
▲ When the panels join together they give a seamless look of continuity.
▲ The backside of each brick panel is reinforced with two vertical structural supports.
We offer two access doors, one is black and one is white. They work the same way, but you get to choose what you think looks best with your skirting. Click on either one to order!
◁ Our vinyl ground channel is the best option for our brick skirting.
If you want to ground channel to be invisible, a small steel “J-Rail” can be attached to the ground, and the panel can be attached in front, appearing to go all the way to the ground or lower. ▷
Another option for a ground channel is our steel ground channel, although with brick panels it is a loose fit and will need to be attached to the panels with screws. Attach to the ground with spikes or to concrete with adhesive. Available in different colors to match the panels.
Choose either ground channel already pre-cut to 60″ lengths, or full 10′ pieces
If you don’t have a heat gun or propane torch to bend your panels around corners, we offer these steel corners in different colors to cover the spots where two panels “butt up” to the corners. Attach with screws or adhesive. Available in different colors to match the panels.
Choose either corners already pre-cut to 36″ lengths (heights), or full 9′ pieces for those homes sitting higher.
To insure you have sufficient ventilation under your home, place these vents at regular intervals in the rock panels. Use either screws or liquid adhesive to hold to the panel. We offer a plain Jane vent with a manual damper or a fancier automatic vent that opens and closes on its own when seasons change. Available in different colors to match the panels.
Hex Head Sccrews
The best option for fastening everything is hex head screws. We offer screws with tan-colored heads to blend into the grout of brick panels where they are used to close up the overlapping areas.
If you use vinyl top back trim, you will only need the plain mill hex head screws, because they will be hidden from view. A short screw of 3/4″ length should be sufficient to hold the trim to the house, but we offer different lengths, in case you are trying to go into older material that may have softened over time.
Calculating a Kit for your Home
Manufactured homes come in many sizes, and you may have decks, porches, or additions attached to your home that you will need to cover, or perhaps you may only need to skirt a portion of your home. For this reason we do not offer a specific size of skirting kit, we sell only what you need. This section is designed to help you calculate the materials you will need.
Please choose from one of the following categories or scroll down the page to follow our simple steps.
If you plan to cover the entire home, measure all four sides. For a 16′ wide x 76′ long house the 4 sides will total up to 184 lineal feet (LF)
If you have to skirt a deck, add the sides coming away from the home to the total lineal footage. Normally, if you skirt around your deck, you don’t have to skirt behind the deck. The red line indicates where your skirting will be installed.
Each panel will be roughly 60″ wide
To calculate the total number of full panels you will need, use this handy formula: Total lineal feet times 12 divided by 60 = Total number of panels needed.
Measure from the ground to the very bottom of the home’s outside wall. This will determine how tall a panel must be to reach from the ground channel to the siding. The flange of the rock panels will extend just above the bottom of the wall. The flange and the fasteners attaching it to the house will later be covered with the top trim.
We offer 2 different heights of panels, so it will be important to know how much of each size you will use. Take a height measurement every 5 feet and mark them down on a diagram of the house.
Now make “zones” for each size of panel. Determine how many running feet will use 32″, 36″ and 48″ panels each. The quantities of each size should add up to the total number of panels you calculated earlier.
Calculate Vent Usage
If you use foundation vents, you will need to plan where they go. We recommend placing one vent every 15-20 lineal feet. Try to place your vents in the middle of a panel, rather than where two panels overlap. This may offset the vents a little, but the idea is to plan for an even look overall. ►
You will need ground spikes to secure the bottom channel to the ground. ►
5-7 spikes per piece of ground channel is recommended, but you may need more for sandy soil.
For steel top trim, you will need 6 screws per 10 lineal feet, including a few extra for overlaps and corners. For 184 LF you will use 115 screws. These screws will be showing so color of screw head will be your choice.
Use tan hex head screws to connect the panels where they overlap.
A good formula for calculating these screws is-
Number of full panels x 12 = # of screws. ►
The amount of screws you will need to attach panels to the ground channel is roughly one screw every 2 lineal feet, no matter if it’s vinyl or steel trim. For 184 LF you will use nearly 100 screws.
